WHO WE ARE
The San Antonio Report is a nonprofit, nonpartisan digital news organization. Because we are member-supported, our quality, in-depth journalism is available at no cost to everyone in the city and beyond; we don’t have a paywall that restricts our content. We publish without fear or favor and without any obligation to outside owners or interests. We cover all that is best about the city: its personalities, neighborhoods, businesses, culture, cuisine, arts and entertainment. We tackle its problems and challenges, too, and spotlight innovative solutions, many to be found in other cities competing for the next generation of talented workers and their families. The San Antonio Report began in 2012 as the Rivard Report, a blog created by a husband-and-wife team that has grown into a thriving online news enterprise with a staff of 22 talented, passionate journalists and nonprofit professionals. Our work, which includes a year-round calendar of civic engagement events, is all about San Antonio and the surrounding communities.
The San Antonio Report’s business development and advertising manager is responsible for managing, maintaining and continuing to improve on the San Antonio Report’s existing advertising program as well as fostering and growing strategic partnerships with local organizations for the purpose of strengthening and growing the San Antonio Report’s business membership program.

The San Antonio Report’s business team is committed to generating financial support for our newsroom to provide the city’s engaged citizens with a credible source of news, information and commentary. This position works closely with other members of the San Antonio Report’s business team and reports to the Chief Operating Officer.
